I wrote a review awhile back where I made a bunch of complaints about the game. As an excited player of the game, I feel like I should point out that a couple of the most annoying things have already been addressed. The biggest one is that players can now manually set the mastery level in the Riff Repeater modes. This is HUGE. No more playing dumbed down versions over and over. Now, one can go to the Accelerator and play the full section at reduced speed. Not only that, but the limit of attempts has gone from 5 to 30 which avoids some menu hell when things are getting rough. There’s still no manual control of the speed, and Riff Repeater exits as soon as one full speed run is completed, but this is still a huge step forward.
I’m very optimistic that the other issues are going to be addressed as well. While playing the game the other day, I noticed that there was a URL to a survey in the scrolling ticker at the bottom. I just completed the survey and I got the impression that they’re well aware of what the issues are. Some surveys seem to completely miss the point or fail to provide answer space to cover the real issues. The multiple select options available covered all of the big concerns and there were still some free form entries. With the progress already made and the survey suggesting more good changes, I’m pretty psyched about the future of this game. I’m going to Rocksmith like a maniac. Thumbs up for rock ‘n’ roll!
